WHO IS FREDERIC LEON
Demand is born out of duality: ‘I am unhappy and I must be happy’. In that very demand that I must be happy is unhappiness. When one makes an effort to be good, in that very goodness is its opposite, evil. Everything affirmed contains its own opposite, and effort to overcome strengthens that against which it strives. When you demand an experience of truth or reality, that very demand is born out of your discontent with what is and therefore the demand creates the opposite. And in the opposite there is what has been. So one must be free of this incessant demand, otherwise there will be no end to the corridor of duality. This means knowing yourself so completely that the mind is no longer seeking. - Freedom from the Known,113
@withlovepromise lookin all cool nshit
I love you like winter is long -
like every winter that ever happened.
from the first winter to the first death.
the first time we were separated.
the first departure toward ourselves,
toward the beginning of the end again.
we have learned it before.
this time i just don’t want to hurt you.
i know i hurt you the first go around, and you hurt me too.
we mustn’t forget.
and we must.
in order to go through this time authentically.
we pretend we don’t already know how all of this ends.
i know you from somewhere before,
and now we meet again in these bodies and these eyes.
again pretending not to see. not to know. not to remember.
but i know.
i claim you.
i argue with you.
i love you.
that’s how i grow.
that’s how i die.
that’s how i live.
with you again, and again.
again, and again.
